As usual, we spent Easter in Wedowee. We arrived at MawMaw Yates’ house late Saturday afternoon. We had been in the car all day traveling back to the beach, so the first thing we did when we got there was let Will run around and play. He had so much fun playing with MawMaw and Uncle Al.
After he burned off some energy, MawMaw took us to eat at The Hub. IT was delicious as always! We spent the rest of the night catching up with them and then it was time to go to sleep so we could head to sunrise service the next morning.
Sunday morning we were up EARLY! We actually slept through our alarm, but we were able to get ready at a lightening pace and make it to church on time. I love the services at MawMaw’s church and always enjoy seeing the people who used to be our neighbors when we lived there. Also, it is really special spending the day with MawMaw and having Will and creating traditions with him.
Between church services, we let Will have his Easter basket. He got a toddler Bible and the Veggie Tale’s Jonah movie. He also got $5 and he thought that was awesome!
MawMaw prepared a great Sunday lunch! We were stuffed. We had to leave shortly after lunch to go to Roanoke to see Clay’s Grandma and that side of his family.
Clay’s cousin, Misty, hosted an Easter Egg Hunt at Shawn and Greg’s house. They had some great food and there were over 500 eggs to hunt! Will found a couple of prize eggs with money in them. He now thinks that all Easter Eggs have money in them. We always have a great time with that side of Clay’s family. We don’t get to see them very often so it is always nice to see them and catch up on what’s been going on in everyone’s life.
IT was a long day and it ended with some tears from a tired little boy, but I can’t help to step back and thank God for all He has done. We are so blessed in this life and we are so grateful that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins!
I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and all things in between. I am married to Clay and love every minute I spend with him. We welcomed our first child, Will, on March 4, 2009, and I don't remember what life was like before him. Life is great and I hope to share some of our moments with you.
